Went to restaurant on recommendation of Grape Leaf Inn. Food was fantastic. Will certainly return. Had the veal parmesan which was delicious! We split the dish because it was such a large portion. Place was packed. Will request bar room table or table along side of wall next time. Very busy being in the middle. Somewhat noisy at 7PM. Make reservation early (5:30PM) or after 8PM for best ambiance. Owner and wife present during our meal to introduce themselves. Made for a very personal experience. Highly recommend.

The only issue for a party of six on a busy Friday night was one end of the table couldn't hear the other I think they could dampen the sound just a bit.

We have eaten here several times and it continues to be A-1. It's very warm and friendly which adds to the ambiance. Always enjoy visiting with the owner as he greets all his guests from table to table.
The Osso Bucco , to me is the highlight of the menu. I highly recommend this wonderful establishment for an evening of delight.

Baci is one of my favorite dining spots in Healdsburg, if not all of Sonoma County.
Great food & people. It is also a pleasant environment.
I have had dinner for 2, 4 and 12 people.
In each case we were treated to prompt service by friendly staff.
Check it out, you will be pleased with an enjoyable experience.

Sat for awhile. Server said they did not tell him we were there. Service was good after that. Excellent wine. Salad with kiwi, persimmons and frisée was very good. Pasta with Demi-glaze, mushrooms, shrimp and scallops was wonderful.

The service was especially notable, but the food was delicious all around, the petrale sole with polenta very enjoyable. This was our first time at Baci; we’ll definitely be back.

We get to Healdsburg several times a year, and it's always a treat to have dinner at Baci. We always enjoy the food and the service, which we find to be both welcoming and unpretentious. Looking forward to our next visit.

The service was great and the food was very good! The onion soup was outstanding! One of the best I've enjoyed! The hostess and our server were wonderful!!

If I have a complaint it is the noise level. I was hoarse from needing to speak so loudly in order for us to hear one another at a table of 3 on the outskirts of the restaurant.

I would recommend Baci Cafe, but with a noise warning.

The food was great, the atmosphere very local, yet very inviting to tourists as well. I ate one of the spe owls for the day, delicious! My husband had a sausage dish which wasn’t as impressive, but was good just the same.
A man, who I assumed to be the owner spoke to people at several tables making everyone feel comfortable and welcome.
Nice wine list too.

The food here is fabulous. I ordered Osso Bucco and it was the best I've ever had. My wife had veal piccata and it was also excellent. Even my salad was delicious. The wine selection is extensive with a lot of local wines; being in the middle of Sonoma, that means they're good.
But the noise. The room is very live and it's full of customers. The noise is very loud and constant. I could not even discuss the food with my wife because we don't like to shout at each other. It's the one downside to an otherwise delightful experience.

The food is excellent. Our server, Barbara, was outstanding. She was very helpful in her recommendations. I suppose the only negative we had was the noise level and I don’t know that they can improve on that. It’s a small place with a lot of tables, very close to each other and you really can’t carry on a conversation, at lease where we were seated. But I would definitely go here again, even with the high noise level.

Has become a principal player in the Healdsburg food scene since we lived there. Very popular with just cause. Nice menu, well prepared food, Attentive service, and except for a very bothersome noise level (for me), a pleasant venue to enjoy a good meal.

Here's why so many of us love Baci...
- There aren't 10 entree's on the menu there are 30 and they are wonderful.
- Customer with food aversions or allergies have at least 10 entrees and this is within the 30 wonderful above
-Service is casual and friendly and professional...you feel good about the experience
This is a husband and wife restaurant...Shari is the chef and Lisbeth manages the room they are good people and they, and the restaurant, are an important part of Heldsburg.
